It is some years since we mentioned the work of Miroslav Sasek, the Czech artist responsible for the wonderful This Is… series of books. But we are going back there right now, having spotted this This Is London 2015 wall calendar.
The book This Is London was the second in the series, dating back to 1959. Like all the other editions (which ran to around 1970), they are essentially a child's view of the particular city, as well as a showcase for Sasek's wonderful illustrations.
You'll get the idea by checking out the calendar, which operates as both organiser, taster for the book and a talking point for your wall. If you've already started planning Christmas gifts, this is definitely worth a look, retailing online for £9.99.
Note that there are other cities available, but the calendars aren't obviously available in the UK. However, www.amazon.com has 2015 calendars for Paris, Australia and New York too.
